About this product
- DescriptionCritical praise for Brian: the highest order of tripe Ian McMillan (Beat Poet); Humble should display false modesty Mark Burgess (Author and Illustrator); wide ranging, inconspicuously thought-provoking and undoubtedly very funny Helen Perkins (North-West Evening Mail); Ranked #9 in the Bonkers Bestseller list on Chris Evans Radio Two Breakfast Show. While gazing into a highly polished tablespoon one day, Jonathan Humble disappeared. Three days later, with a new best friend called Brian, he re-emerged with the germ of an idea: a jet pack device for moving cows from field to field, thereby solving at a stroke the problems encountered by many a motorist on country lanes. The result of this and other musings - My Camel's Name Is Brian - is w available for the amusement of readers the world over. Over 100 poems from the biro of the Tripe Poet Laureate!
- Author BiographyJonathan Humble is a deputy head teacher in a rural school in Cumbria. He's worked as a painter, lettuce picker and power industry engineer. Other than writing poetry and short stories, his hobbies include beard growing, pointing at poppies whilst saying Oooo, they look nice! and keeping the international coffee industry afloat with his patronage. Originally from Goole in East Yorkshire, he occasionally writes under the pseudonym of Northern Jim and is rapidly establishing a reputation as the 'go-to' poet for fruit, sock and offal-based poetry. When asked about the intriguing title of his first collection of poems he replied Can you ever have too many camels? His poetry has appeared in numerous publications and on radio. He appears regularly at Verbalise in The Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal and at other performance poetry venues in the North West of England. Jonathan was appointed as the Tripe Poet Laureate by the UK Tripe Marketing Board in 2014.
